Have you ever wondered about the process of developing a craft publication? Join us for the next Craft Research Talks, a program series that goes behind the scenes with leading craft scholars to learn about their new projects in progress! This May, we are joined by Michelle Millar Fisher, Curator of Contemporary Decorative Arts at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and book designer Natasha Chandani on Wednesday, May 15, from 5:30 to 6:30 pm ET for a discussion of the upcoming book and exhibition, Craft Schools: Where We Make What We Inherit.

Funded, in part, by a Center for Craft Research Fund grant, Millar Fisher embarked on a two-year, five-part journey across 48 states to centers of craft education to understand who defines craft historically and today. She mined institution and personal archives and interviewed students, makers, and artists, from Pond Farm Pottery in Sonoma County, California to Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle, Washington to the Stewart Indian School Museum and Cultural Center in Carson City Nevada to Four Winds Boatcraft in Vermilion, South Dakota.

Tune in as Millar Fisher discusses her research, travel experiences, and the wonderful people, places, and practices that shaped Craft Schools: Where We Make What We Inherit, in conversation with collaborator and one of the Craft Schools book designers Natasha Chandani of Clanada, an international duo of graphic designers focused on publication design.

Craft Research Talks: Craft Schools: Where We Make What We Inherit is a free virtual program open to the public.
